that pastel trend

18 March 2013

Okay so the pastels aren't much of a huge trend this season but they do seem to be creeping up everywhere! Especially, mint - man I love that minty fresh colour, perfect with a complementing tan :)

I have a somewhat love hate relationship with pastels, I absolutely love to look at them! But almost always hate them on me (except here in my h&m minty jumper) - I think it's my lack of a golden sheen. At the moment i'm whiter than white but after a bit of sun to my skin and locks I know that I can absolutely wear all of these pastel items, bring on the sun!

Mint green, lavender, peach, light pink and duck egg blue - there are beautiful pieces popping up in lots of spring/summer collections at the moment. From jeans to crop tops, spring knits and hair accessories I have found some really gorgeous ways to wear this trend, a rather large selection in fact :)

where to find these pastel trend pieces
baby blue satchel | peach flocked floral dress | heart patch duck egg blue jumper | lilac skinny belt
pink skinny jeans | mint stud handbag | mini rosie headband | light mint bag | blue baroque peplum skirt
pastel leather hair bows | pink polka mobile case | spearmint skinny jeans | lilac converse | mint satchel
lilac whole lotta rosie headband | peach fairtrade handbag | mint high neck crop top | mint crop jumper
pink high neck crop top | mint cardigan | lilac crop vest top | lace mint peplum vest | peach cut out top
grey heart patch mint top | peach burn out skinny jeans | mint high slit maxi skirt

As always there is no short of beautiful bloggers rocking the pastels and these are a couple of favourites. Kavita, what can I say, the girl is beautiful and there seems to be no end of clothes and trends that suit her. I also love Nany in her colour blocking pastel number, someone remind me to pick up a pair of lilac jeans please?
